    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would definitely recommend this course with this teacher because she makes learning about words and sentence structures fun. I have never been the one to like English class but this one was great for me.

    Course highlights:

    One thing I remember about this class is the sentence diagrams we did everyday as a warm up. It helps to understand the parts and structure of a sentence and theyre fun to do.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    You have to be a hard worker and dedicated to any assignment that is given. Also, it is helpful to be open to learning knew things and new ways of doing things.

    | Would recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class if a student is not good at taking AP tests. I took this class because I did not make a good score on my English AP test I took he previous year. The class had very few actual test. Most of the grades came from specifically writing essays, though their were several quizzes towards the end of the semester, but part of the reason for that was that my class never actually read the assignments.

    Course highlights:

    This class involved was mainly writing essays. Basically the whole semester we would "read" out of our literature book and that would be the basis of our next essay. For each essay we would read examples, go over the guidelines, revisit our sheet of "don'ts in an essay," make a rough draft, have peer review, workshop, and then turn in our final drafts. I feel that the peer review was beneficial when my friends reviewed mine, but their would always be a random selection and usually that person would only do the bare minimum to get credit and no actually read/edit my essay. They would say it was great when I knew I had messed up in several places.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would say that you should always read the assignments. In the beginning of the semester our teacher would tell us to read and most would not and we always got away with it. When we had class discussions over the reading the teacher and like one other student would do all the talking. Towards the end of the semester Our teacher began to get mad that none of us were actually reading and began to give us quizzes over the readings the next day. Also the reading are the focus point of the final. The final consists of one essay and then ten short answers. For the short answers we got a list of about 12-15 different questions and then we got to pick 10 out of those to write about. Having the choice to choose helped, but most of them were about the readings so it is best to have the background knowledge. Also don't jus watch the movie if their is one because their are many differences and our teacher has seen the movies so she notices when you write about the movies instead of the text.
